Gno: Cannibal Tango
Gno Cannibal Tango album new music review

Gno: Cannibal Tango

Heavy/Progressive Rock
4.0/5.0

I would give high marks to Gno simply for their goofy and cool album art. But what this French power trio has within their second album Cannibal Tango is equally interesting. Gno plays a heavy rock with twists that include metal, funk, and progressive with a very strong groove. You might hear King's X to Korn, the Beatles to Zappa, and all in a very pleasing melodic ear-grabbing wrapper. That's not as disturbing as it sounds. It can be rather infectious.

Her I Stand, The Keeper, or Be My Pride can crack with metal, but also offer a generous groove and a strong vocal harmony. Cannibal Tango and Fever can have you equally tapping your toe as pumping your fist. Gno can also be clever and accessible with the tongue-in-cheek satire and rock of Russian Girls. Later they combine genuine emotion and loyalty in the heavy, and catchy, groove rock of Be My Pride and Fathers & Sons.

Be assured of one thing: there's much to explore hear. Cannibal Tango requires successive listen for maximum enjoyment. They pack a bunch of music in every song. Ultimately, however, the band and the music is canvas for guitarist Christophe Godwin considerable and creative talent; he's a recognized player in his country.

For a twist on the venerable power trio combination, look to the inspired and creative heavy groove rock of Gno's Cannibal Tango. Recommended.
